Sweet Treat Heart Cups Birthday


Ever since this card I have been in LOVE with the new Sweet Treat cups. Today's card features the Sweetheart Treat Cups, but tomorrow I will be sharing a boyish card with the round Sweet Treat Cups. You will definitely want to come back to see it. 

I needed some quick birthday cards for some of the little girls in my church class so I whipped these up the other night. I made one for each girl who had/has a birthday in February. I started with a Pretty In Pink base but this time cut it down to 3 1/4" x 6 1/2" so it would be a 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" card when folded. I rounded the outside corners with my 3/16" Corner Rounder Punch. I added a 3" x 3" piece of Designer Series Paper to the front. This is from last years Valentine collection, it was one of my favorites! I rounded the same corners on it and adhered it with SNAIL Adhesive. I filled my Sweetheart Treat Cup with Valentine M&M's and removed the adhesive protector from the bottom. This was then placed directly to the Designer Series Paper. I then took a piece of Whisper White card stock and trimmed it to be 3" x 1 1/4". I rounded one corner and then ran my Scallop Edge Punch along the top. Next I stamped the sentiment in Regal Rose ink. The sentiment is from the Something Sweet set. (HINT: This is a set in the NEW Occasions Mini Catalog. It comes in the Clear Mount form and the Wood Block Form. Not sure if Clear Mount is for you? See all the info here.) 


To fill in the blank space on each side of the sentiment I stamped the heart image from the set in Pretty In Pink and Close to Cocoa ink onto a Whisper White scrap and cut them out with Paper Snips. (HINT: Paper Snips are a great tool because they allow you to cut intricately and close up especially with small shapes.) The hearts were popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals. On the opposite side I tied a piece of Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon around the card. This was secured with a Mini Glue Dot
Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for another creative idea using the Treat Cups. Until then,
